Episode 3: Paying for Outcomes

In this podcast episode, former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick discuss outcomes-based funding approaches, the Social Impact Partnerships to Pay for Results Act (SIPPRA), and building public-private partnerships to lift people out of poverty.

One thing we do historically well in America is innovate. One thing we do historically poorly in America is transition—which is to say, we get on to the new thing and we consider the consequences later, if at all. In an economy where innovation is disrupting the workplace, we need to be prepared; our people need to be prepared to help drive that innovation.” —Deval Patrick
